Returning each night to Llandudno, it runs through the ancient la The elegant Victorian seaside town of Llandudno will be our home for four days and nights. There'll be a great atmosphere at scrutineering, which starts at 08.00 on the Promenade. Lord Mostyn, whose family built Llandudno, is invited to lead the judging of the Concours d’Elegance, sponsored this year by Rally HQ, the Imperial Hotel, and spectators can enjoy the show from 9.30 – 11.30. Day One: Seas & Isles - Wednesday 5th June 2019 - Emphasis: Touring Day 1: Long sea views and new venues to enjoy Starting at 08.00 from Llandudno Promenade, we begin with a scenic mountain drive that offers the first stunning sea views, then move west to our first driving test of the day at Parc Faenol. Wandering first down into Snowdonia, our main aim this morning is to enjoy the scenic roads of the Lleyn peninsula, taking in a visit to popular Dylan’s brasserie in Criccieth for a coffee by the sea. After a spectacular driving test at nearby kart circuit Glasfryn Parc and a first regularity section we’ll make back towards the coast. By the sea near Porthmadog lies the famous AA**** Portmeirion Hotel, where we’ll wander down through the famous Italianate village (in which the 1960s TV series ‘The Prisoner’ was set) enjoying lunch in the hotel with its wide views. In the afternoon we’ll shift focus, enjoying a couple of regularity sections to anticipate the next day, then taking in the great high views of Snowdonia, giving you a fine opportunity to enjoy the mountains close up. We plan to stop for afternoon tea at Bryn Tyrch, an old whitewashed roadside inn near the mountain village of Capel Curig that’s become well known for its great food (AA*) in recent years. After this, a regularity and two more tests will finish this first 160 mile day. Back in Llandudno, you’ll choose from three options. Supper at a convivial Llandudno bistro is included, as is supper at the AA**** Imperial Hotel, rally HQ. At a supplement, there will be a champagne reception and private view at Plas Mawr (the finest Tudor merchant’s house in Britain) followed by a fine dinner at the AA*** Castle Hotel in Conwy.
